BLESS HIS HEART

Arkansas Man Freaks Out At NBC Rainbow Logo, But The Joke Is On Him

nbc-logo-vector4When Don Stair of Arkansas switched on his television set last week, he was livid to see that NBC had changed the colors of its logo to depict a pride rainbow. Or so he thought. So he did what any sane, rational person does and took to Facebook to express his anger.

Stair posted the following comment on KARK 4 News’ Facebook wall:

Screen shot 2015-06-29 at 11.10.05 AMWhat Mr. Stair didn’t seem to realize was that NBC’s rainbow peacock logo has been the same since 1986.

Thankfully, the network filled him in on this detail:

Screen shot 2015-06-29 at 11.10.15 AM

That seemed to quell his outrage.

Stair’s comment has since been removed. KARK 4 News says it didn’t delete it, which means he must have realized his mistake and deleted it himself.

As they say down in Arkansas: Bless his heart.

    Shows how much he watched NBC to begin with. Get a real life Don Stair, and stay out of the gays life’s.

  • mcflyer54

    He apparently is such a bigot that he habitually looks for symbols to further enrage him. This is the kind of crackpot who will end up hurting somebody over an issue (gays) that really has no negative impact on people with a satisfying life.

  • Kevin Cato

    And what’s with that rainbow in the sky? So, the sky is gay now, too? That’s just great! From now on, I’m only looking up at night. Shame on you!

  • Deon Letsoalo

    Oh God! If he has kids, I really hope they don’t take physics at school or he’ll blow a gasket when he sees their notes on ‘colour’.
